I wish I could give you the long story but I don’t have the energy… so here’s the short version.
I am 15 days late for my period. I have a ton of symptoms that I thought must mean I’m pregnant. I decided that since everything looked good, I would allow myself – for once – to indulge in dreaming about this. I planned an elaborate way to tell my Hubby which involved an Easter egg hunt on Sunday morning. I dreamed of sharing with our families on Easter…. I was certain I was pregnant. There were also a NUMBER of things happening that I took as a sign that I was definitely pregnant this time.
I have a lot of anxiety around pregnancy tests, so I was biding my time waiting until I was absolutely sure I was late enough that a test would be able to detect HCG. I took my first morning’s urine and peed on what I hoped was my LAST pregnancy test ever. I had such a good feeling about it. I’ve never been so sure that I was pregnant as I was this time. I woke up at 3 am and couldn’t get back to sleep so I decided to just do the test and get it over with.
And I was met with the same stark white pregnancy test as I have stared at more times than I care to admit. Always stark white.
I was stupid to let myself get carried away with making plans – how could I be so silly and careless.
Then, of course, there is to consider the symptoms I’ve been experiencing and my lack of period – and all signs point to (if not pregnancy) another ovarian cyst. My last ovarian cyst resulted in the loss of my right ovary and fallopian tube. Please, God, don’t let this be the same situation because I only have one ovary left.
I am emotional, and so sad. I shouldn’t be, because I never was pregnant, but I really, really thought this was it this time …. like, everything was checking out…. everything. I’ve never been so sure before. Gah, infertility can be so unfair sometimes, and PCOS just makes it worse because it plagues me with every pregnancy symptom in the book – and yet no pregnancy – like some cruel joke.
I’m sad and I’m very scared that I’m going to have another cyst (or something worse) because my symptoms are too significant to ignore. My Dr is closed for the Easter holiday, so I will likely pop into emerg tomorrow if this don’t get better. I’m afraid to leave it in case it kills off my ovary like the other one did.
I’m sorry I have nothing good to say today. I’m just so sad and so scared.
